I was diagnosed with Endometriosis, PCOS and Hydrosalpinx nearly three years ago on 17th March 2012 during a diagnostic lap. I had previously undergone an emergency appendectomy only ten months earlier after collapsing in pain at work. I was diagnosed during my second lap, but it wasn’t treated until three months later as it was too dangerous to continue during the diagnostic lap. I’m due to have my fourth lap this year. I was pain-free for only a few months. In December, I found out I have Myofascial pelvic pain syndrome with Hyposensitive trigger points, and I start physiotherapy to help this coming Wednesday.
No matter what happens, I will always have a smile on my face and will continue to fight like a girl. I am the girl who is always in constant pain, but looks completely healthy on the outside. I am the girl who is possibly infertile. I am the girl who always calls in sick. I am the girl who has a pharmacy in her handbag. I am the girl who is always going to doctor’s appointments and emergency rooms. I am the girl who is always tired. I am the girl with the disease you can’t pronounce or understand.
